For a 3 star hotel, Hotel Belvedere is excellent. The room and hotel was spotless. The breakfast was good and the owners are on site to make sure your stay goes well. It even has a beautiful very large swimming pool for adults and a smaller one for children. You won't be unhappy staying for sure.
I didn't sleep here but looks like it should be at least 4 stars. Views are great and it has lots of places to explore. We stopped for coffee and cake. The panacotta was great and fresh tasting. Worth a visit if you are driving through the curvy roads around.
Our second stay at this lovely hotel . Food was excellent either in the restaurant or out on the terrace with a breathtaking view of the valley . All staff looked after our every need . Swimming pool immaculately kept . Would recommend this hotel to anybody looking to relax from the moment you arrive . Richard & cindy Dickerson 😘
Lovely spot up in the mountains... Takes forever and a day of winding roads to get up there but is lovely and cool out of the valley summer heat. The owner is a bit of a curmudgeon but the rooms are clean and most have a lovely view and terrace. The swimming pool is first class, stay away from the restaurant which honestly is not very good- however the nearest other restaurant is miles away and you probably will not have the courage for more driving. The rooms rates are excellent so all in all a good pit stop and a restful time away from the food excesses of the local agriturismo restaurants.
A warm and friendly family greeted us for our one night stay. Room accommodations were clean and comfortable with an incredible view of the valley. Dinner on the outdoor patio was superb. Amazing food, especially the fish. Breakfast was just enough with fresh baked pastries and other continental selections.
Please see my review for "Albergo Belevedere", there are two Trip Advisor sites for this hotel. I particularly loved the well-kept grounds and the pool here. The food is extremely good and excellent value.
We recently had lunch here while driving from Lucca to Cinque Terra. The meal was very nice, good price but the views are stunning. You get charged the usual cover charge which seems to be everywhere in Italy. You think restaurants would be happy to have customers seeing as we were the only ones there at that time. That being said we were happy we stopped here.
The area is breathtakingly beautiful. My room had a balcony and view, an important thing to request as half the rooms don't have a view as they face the back. I was able to sit on the balcony and watch the sunset - stunning. The pool was exceptionally clean and good sun loungers. The food here good too. My only fault is that the staff weren't very friendly. The main couple who run it are in their 30s or early 40s I guess and he in particular always looked so grumpy and certainly doesn't believe in the "service with a smailw" mantra! A shame as it puts you off an otherwise pleasant place to stay. The rooms are quite noisy. They have tiled floors and so every time someone moves a chair or anything upstairs it sounds like an earthquake! Also, the doors to the rooms have big wood key chains and these bump against the door as people open and close their doors - I felt as though I was in prison hearing all these doors open and slowing with loud locks! Also, shame they can't just give good wifi in your room. You have access in the reception but for your room you have to register your cc and then you have two hours free. Make sure you log off from their system if you do this. I hate giving cc for this type of thing, just throw it in free it makes people happy!!…
I spent a week in the hotel with a group of other walkers. The view from the hotel over to the Apuan Alps is delightful and the hotel is ideally placed for exploring the tranquil Garfagnana countryside. I had everything to make a walking holiday perfect - good food, particularly the hearty soups,a comfortable room with a lovely sunny terrace, a delightful swimming pool, and attentive hosts who put themselves out to ensure their guests' comfort.
Beautiful location with great facilities and excellent restaurant. Free parking. Free wifi in public areas. Room and bathroom were spotless as was the rest of the hotel. Wish we had stayed longer to enjoy the pool and some local walks. Good breakfast. Friendly and welcoming hosts. Restaurant meal was very reasonably priced and probably the best we have ever had.
